REVIEWS

Ian Buckley,
Jewish dissident Israel Shamir

Readers may recall that I briefly mentioned Israel Shamir in these pages a little while ago. Shamir, a very elegant stylist, produces some of the most interesting and outspoken articles available today on the theme of Zionism and its impact on world affairs. His boldness has already cost him his post on the Jerusalem Haaretz newspaper.


Karin M. Friedemann,
The American Journal of Islamic Social Sciences

A brilliant storyteller with a vast knowledge of history, Shamir discusses current events and their global implications with brutal honesty and tenderness. His clear insights and lyrical use of language to illustrate social, religious, and political complexities make him the Khalil Gibran of our time.


Does Shamir exist?
An article in a Russian weekly Zavtra

For a few years of Israel Shamir's publications in Zavtra, the newspaper has received over ten kilograms of letters and megabytes of email carefully and convincingly showing in diverse non-contradictory ways and in sundry languages that such a person doesn't and cannot exist. Altogether they produced some 27 reasons against Shamir's existence. There were deconstructions and refutations, subtle sophisms, proofs to the contrary, fact comparison analysis, content deconstruction, oaths and denunciations, exposes and requests to confess the truth.


A Hellenizing Jew

Israel Shamir is a distinguished writer and journalist, a linguist, BBC commentator, former spokesman for the Israeli socialist party in the Knesset, and translator of many books from English and Hebrew.

BLUMEN AUS GALILÄA


Schriften gegen die Zerstörung des Heiligen Landes

ISBN 3-85371-231-2, br., 216 Seiten, Euro 17,90, sFr 30,80
Herausgegeben von Fritz Edlinger, aus dem Englischen übersetzt von Eva Hirschmugl
Eine jüdische Geschichte erzählt von einem stummen Kind, das trotz intensiver ärztlicher Bemühungen niemals ein Wort sprach. Eines Tages, im fortgeschrittenen Alter von 10 Jahren, ließ es bei Tisch plötzlich seinen Löffel fallen und rief: "Die Suppe ist zu salzig!" Die Eltern fragten ihr Kind erstaunt, warum es all die Jahre geschwiegen hatte und es antwortete: "Bis jetzt war immer alles in Ordnung."
